I started knitting when I was ten. The person who taught me is nw 86 years old. She is home bound but still knits. I spend a day or two each week with her. We spent most of our time knitting. I sometimes buy her some of the new DK self-striping yarns that were not available before. As she is home-bound she doesn't know about all the new yarns on the market. We have a great time together.
